These exploits will cause a crash which will then trap players in infinite death rings.
Elden Ring players are advised to stop playing online after reports that some PC gamers are being hacked by invaders destroying their rescue.
As detailed in reddit He explained via Twitter account @EldenRingUpdate, that he believes hackers corrupt save data, force a crash, and then restart causes the infected player to fall into infinity.
If this all sounds a bit familiar, you’re not wrong; A similar issue occurred in Dark Souls 3 as well.
Currently, neither From Software nor Bandai Namco has publicly commented on this issue, so players are instead trying to warn each other via social media.
In some cases, you may be able to travel quickly to a great location if you’re fast, but it doesn’t work for everyone. Until a full fix is released, players are advised to opt out of the invasions, or switch to offline mode altogether. And if you haven’t regularly backed up your saved data, now might be a good time to start, at least until this issue is rectified.
If you find yourself on the sharp end of this, Redditors think they may have come up with a workaround But the success of this is also not guaranteed.
?? Elden Ring PSA for PC ??
There is an exploit happening on the PC where the hackers corrupt your save file while you are doing the invasion.
First they will spoil your game, and when you open it again, your character will constantly drop to death… pic.twitter.com/8et3bl8T1I
